Food combining does not always support eating balanced which is the basis of good nutrition. Many foods in nature contain carbs and protein all at once – I think it is for a reason! The body functions best when in balance! It has the ability to, through its enzymes, to digest all macro nutrients (protein, carbs & fats) – and even when eaten at the same time.
What is important is not to over eat at each mealtime as that puts a burden on the digestive system, also try not to eat too much fat which is another culprit and eat quite a bit of raw food as they contain enzymes and obviously all the nutrients that we need to run an effective body. Eat six times per day, eat low GI, low fat – eat most fat at good fats, and eat some protein with each meal. If you want to increase muscle mass you can increase your protein intake up to twice your body weight and make sure you are in a positive energy balance otherwise you will never gain.
Remember – balance!
